Textbook about Emotional Trauma

Treating Emotional Trauma with Chinese Medicine , by CT Holman (published by Singing Dragon) comprehensively explains the Chinese Medicine diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of the impact of emotional trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).  

This book integrates the multi-diagnostic and treatment methods existing in Chinese medicine, and contains diagnostics such as facial, pulse, tongue, and channel palpation diagnosis.  Treatments include acupuncture, Chinese herbal formulas, qigong, shamanic drumming, and lifestyle/nutritional recommendations.  Many types of emotional traumas and their manifestations are presented, including fear, anxiety, panic attacks, PTSD, depression, mood swings, insomnia and sensory organ impairment.  Preventing the impact from future emotional trauma is discussed.

Emotional trauma can upset the harmony of the body and reduce the body's ability to heal and regulate itself. Once the traumas are identified and treated, the body will function at an optimum level and will respond to treatments for other conditions present.

This is the first book to apply facial diagnosis and shamanic drumming with acupuncture and Chinese herbal formulas.

Rich in case studies and self-care techniques, the text presents ancient wisdom along with modern research bridging Chinese and Western medical approaches to resolving trauma.  CT weaves the information in an easy to read enjoyable format accessible for the layperson and yet rich with practical treatment gems for the seasoned practitioner.  The text inspires anyone interested in the treatment of or personal resolution of Emotional Trauma to shine brightly with a clear heart.
